Paramount Group Mine Protected and Armoured Vehicles, Peacekeeping and Internal Security

top

Paramount Group is a world leader in defence and security innovation with an exceptional reputation for developing and delivering defence and aerospace solutions for land, sea and air. It is also a trusted provider of high-quality peacekeeping support services to sovereign governments around the world.

The group, based in Johannesburg, South Africa, was established in 1994 and prides itself on driving innovation in security and defence technologies. Its core expertise and reputation was built around the development of armour-protected vehicles. These foundations have expanded into peacekeeping support, correctional facilities, naval support services and aerospace.

Leading the way

In 2011, Paramount Group developed the ground-breaking advanced high performance reconnaissance light aircraft, which was the first fixed-wing military aircraft to be conceived, designed and built in Africa.

Paramount Group’s six-wheeled troop carrier, the MBombe, was the first of its kind to offer all-round protection against rocket-propelled grenade attacks, improvised explosive devices and anti-tank mines.

Paramount Group is also one of the first companies in Africa to launch a portable production model, which enables Paramount Group’s vehicles and aircraft to be manufactured in a client’s own country under joint production agreements. This in turn boosts jobs, strengthens engineering and innovation, and drives economic growth.

Turnkey financial solutions

Paramount Group’s unique approach to finance compliments its portable production model. The company enables clients to procure equipment and support packages with deferred, multi-year repayment terms.

This solution enables emerging economies to be able to able to afford state-of-the-art defence, peacekeeping and internal security solutions on a smaller budget in an austerity climate.

Market-leading peacekeeping solutions

As the leading defence equipment contractor for peacekeeping forces across Africa, Paramount understands the security, economic and political challenges faced by modern peacekeeping forces.

The company delivers world-class defence equipment and consultancy services to governments and peacekeeping missions around the world. Peacekeeping services and products range from armoured vehicles, aerospace support, and personnel equipment to command and communications systems. Paramount also understands the financial demands of building a peacekeeping force and offers a range of flexible funding options to ensure missions can be properly equipped.

Advanced internal security products

Paramount Group also offers modern, market-leading solutions for internal security challenges such as border patrol, counter terrorism and disaster management.

The company’s internal security solutions include purpose-built armoured vehicles, personal protection and crowd control equipment, a large range of communications options and a ground-breaking light reconnaissance aircraft known as AHRLAC.

AHRLAC replicates the performance of drones and helicopters at a more affordable cost. The aircraft offers the following features:

  • Highly flexible form of ‘clip-on-clip-off’ payload system to allow quick transformation between operational roles
  • Can stay in the air for seven to 10 hours
  • Carries two passengers
  • Designed to carry out surveillance, policing, border / coastal patrol and anti-smuggling; armed patrol and counter insurgency operations; disaster relief and emergency supply to remote areas; and intelligence gathering

Other Paramount Group offerings include a selection of infrastructure programmes to support the development of police and correctional services capacities.
